Supreme Pizza Soup

Pizza Soup is Supreme

Who doesn’t love a supreme pizza? I do! But we barely ever have it. I don’t know why, but something needs to be done about it. Soon, too--it’s so good. What if you could take all your favorites from a supreme pizza and make a soup with them? Yeah, that would be fantastic! That was a thought that was in the back of my head for a while. Onions, peppers, Italian sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, cheese…I’m hungry!

You can have all of these things in a hot, steamy bowl of comforting soup, and have your pizza breadsticks on the side! No delivery charges, no tipping a delivery person, just good, home cooked soup.

Yes. This is soup, posing as a pizza pie.

A while back, I was contacted by Jaclyn, representing Pomi tomato products. She’d read an interview with me at The Hectic Gourmet, and I’d said that I like to stock Pomi in my pantry. It’s true, I do! Why? Because they use 100% all natural tomatoes, are BPA-free and contain no preservatives or additives. I can definitely stand behind that! They taste so fresh and delicious. They also have a new line of sauces, and Jaclyn offered some for me to try.

Supreme Pizza Soup

I had a few ideas for the marinara, but in the end, I had to make this soup. It’s hearty and satisfying, and you can make some breadsticks out of your favorite pizza dough to serve alongside. I made mine plain, but you could brush them with melted butter and sprinkle with herbs, or garlic, some grated cheese--whatever you like!

Supreme Pizza Soup

Makes...a lot. A big potful! Invite some friends over.

1 lb. bulk Italian sausage, crumbled, cooked and set aside
       (or links, removed from casings and cooked)
1/3 cup finely diced pepperoni
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup diced onion
2 small (or 1 large) red bell peppers, seeded and diced
16 oz sliced mushrooms
1 (26 oz) carton Pomi Marinara
1 (26 oz) carton Pomi Chopped Tomatoes
2 quarts chicken broth or stock
1 1/2 tsp pizza seasoning
1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp black pepper
2/3 cup alphabet noodles, or other small noodle
Blend of shredded Italian cheeses

In a large soup pot, over medium heat, heat a bit of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the pepperoni. Sauté for about 2 minutes. Add the garlic, onion, and peppers, and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add the mushrooms. Sauté for about 10 minutes or so.

Stir in the marinara, the chopped tomatoes, and the broth. Add the cooked sausage to the pot. Next add the seasonings-the pizza and Italian seasonings, basil, and pepper. Bring the soup to a boil.

When it comes to a boil, stir in the noodles. Bring the soup back to a simmer and cook until the noodles are done, about 5-10 minutes. Taste and check for seasonings.

Serve each bowl with a sprinkling of the shredded cheeses, and some pizza dough breadsticks.

Supreme Pizza Soup

I hope you’ll love this hearty soup as much as we do! If there’s something you absolutely cannot live without on your pizza, you could probably add it to this--within reason. I mean, no pineapple, ok? Olives, ham, bacon, spinach--those would be great! Get creative!

What a great idea! This looks so yummy

Hi, Elle! Just found your blog via Foodie Blog Roll and love finding other New England chefs. I'm a MA girl! This looks amazing - would never think to make a pizza soup. I'm impressed.

October 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLindsay @ Schnoodle Soup

Elle! where did you find the alphabet noodles? Love those.
What a cute idea. You rock!

October 12, 2011 | Unregistered Commentervanillasugarblog

I found the noodles right at Stop and Shop, Dawn. I think they're from Prince?


October 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterElle

Haha I love that you spelled things out with the alphabet noodles. And that you used alphabet noodles to begin with. I've never had pizza soup, but this looks like a smash hit!

October 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterErin

Looks so delicious!!!! I'm thinking about making a new soup this week with Chorizo, so I appreciate your advice about when to add the sausage!

October 12, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterd.liff @ yelleBELLYboo

I love it when I see new ideas where cooks color outside the lines...who says pizza can't be soup! Homerun!! Ally :)

October 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAlly

This is right up our alley, can't wait to try it! I use Pomi tomatoes as well and will have to look for their marinara. How cuuuuuute is that alphabet pasta!?!

October 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterApril was in CT now CA

I didn't even have to think about it before putting this on Pinterest...its chilly here today and I so wish I had the stuff to make this! I also just got The Hubby and I a special soup bowl and can't wait to try them!

October 12, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBestfoodies

Oh my, the pizza slut in me just went all kinds of happy with this! I have a potluck lunch next month that I've been scratching my head over and I think this will do more than nicely. :)

I use only Pomi toms as well, ever since my Italian teacher raved about them. They are a bit spendy but the taste is extraordinary and I like being able to salt them up at will.

You've done it again, baby!

Oh and Manischewitz makes the little alphabetty noodles. I found them in the Jewish ingredients aisle in a little thin package with their bean soup mixes. My store doesn't carry any other brand of them so this was a lucky strike.


October 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

d.liff @ yelleBELLYboo : Thank you so much! Normally, I'd cook the sausage in the same pot and use some of the fat that was rendered, but I knew there would be some fat and flavor from the pepperoni, so I went with that.

Good luck-chorizo will be amazing in a soup!

October 13, 2011 | Registered CommenterElle

What an awesome idea!

October 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCurt

You know what Elle...maybe you've help me hit on it. What? Well, I just don't like pizza that looks much better as soup! I prefer pizza with lighter ingredients, veggies, unique cheeses, even fruit and I love a rich hearty soup and this sure fits. You have solved my own mystery. Well done.

Pinning this soup to make for Matt, I think he'll adore you for it ;)

October 13, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterkat

This is such a fantastic idea Elle! And those little letters are the cutest - your phrases have me cracking up :) I can't wait to make this - the only minor change I'll make is to omit the peppers since they're my least favorite part of the supreme pizza.

October 13, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTracey

HA! You're too funny Helle! I just love the sound of this recipe and my stomach is growling at you as I write this! This was an inspired idea and I'm going to add it to my list of Winter comfort foods. Thanks. You're one Helle of a gal!

October 14, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterRenee @KudosKitchen

We adore Pomi here as well and always have a bunch on hand. It is the one that my husband grew up on in Italy! This soup sounds so amazing! Making it soon!

October 17, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJenn @ Leftover Queen

what a great prod. will have to admit i've never heard of it! argh, especially as much tomato sauce as I use in my food! All natural?? I'll take it! The soup looks amazing! So perfect for fall!

October 17, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBren

Holy mother of...I've been gluten free since April. A) I come from an Italian family and not having pasta doesn't hurt so much after awhile, but you still want the taste. B) I miss pizza like you read about.

I made it tonight with Rao's marninara (Pomi marinara hasn't made it to my local Whole Foods and Fire roasted tomatoes. 3 kinds of homemade sausage (garlic and herb, reg Italian and hot Italian) added crushed red pepper and fresh basil. For cheese I grabbed smoked mozzarella, fontina and parm. I skipped the pasta bites for obvious reasons, but could have tossed in rice if I wanted.

SOOOOOOOOO goood! All those nice flavors I missed in a big warm comforting bowl. Score! Thank you.

October 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterjo

Elle - this is beauty. :) Cannot wait to make it!

November 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSKM

Oh my goodness - I missed this the first time around. What a hearty delicious pizza soup!

October 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKristen

Not sure I've seen Pomi tomato products - Hannaford? Market Basket? Where do you normally get them?

October 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLizzie

Lizzie, I always got them at Stop and Shop. Not sure about their sauces, though. I have a hard time finding those. I've seen the tomatoes at MB, but again, not the sauces. You can use any other sauce that you love in place of the sauce and it should be just fine.

October 3, 2012 | Registered CommenterElle

Bought the stuff, except the alphabets. UGH, guess I'll be sending hubby back out, LOL

October 3, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKim

This recipe looks wonderful! I would take out the pasta make an artisan pizza dough a put it on top of each bowl of soup with chees on top like a mini pizza!
